Rocky Mountain Forest District Road and Bridge Works


The following is a ledger of road and bridge maintenance and replacement works in the Rocky Mountain Forest District.  All users have a responsibility to check for updated conditions and use forest roads according to current conditions.  Road conditions can change without any warning and this ledger may not reflect such conditions.

IMPORTANT ROAD INFORMATION

Public Caution:

Seasonal conditions exist on most roads.  Back-country roads may present rough and/or wet conditions with soft (muddy) sections. Where avalanche paths exist the roads may be partially covered with residual debris. As always, caution is advised on all roads and back-country travellers should be aware of rapidly changing weather conditions and stream flows which may affect road conditions. 

For questions regarding these closures please contact Dave Rebagliati at (250) 417-9596 or Len Palajac (250) 919-5523.

Middle Fork of the White River bridges at 66km and 68km are being replaced. No access until completed, make alternate plans.

Road Closures:

Flathead FSR from Corbin south to Flathead town site is closed due to multiple washouts including all bridges and culverts.

Mark Creek Main FSR is closed to non-industrial traffic. This closure, and accompanying gate, was approved to protect public health and safety, and to reduce the risk of significant sediment delivery to Mark Creek. Mark Creek Main FSR is the access to the Mark Creek Community Watershed which provides water for the city of Kimberley.

McClatchie FSR is closed at the Squaw Creek Bridge due to bridge washout.


Special Interest:

Pollock Creek Bridge on the Flathead FSR was removed for public safety. A ford was created to provide access beyond this point. Take extra caution when using this crossing.

is closed for the season.
